    It was. Boring gameplay, boring visuals, and a boring story. The only thing it got right was the characters, who were varied and fun.

    It was a total chore to complete the game. Was I happy I did? Hell yes, but no way am I going to do it ever again. How this game got so popular is beyond me.

    I pretty much only liked the soundtrack.

    Oh yes, the soundtrack! How could I forget that? It's good. I like it, but characters and music do not make a good game.

    Boring gameplay - not important, I played for the story

    boring visuals - why do you care how it looks?

    boring story - if you think and over analyze, you will see it's more than just getting out from the underground



    So, yeah. This game is great, but not for everyone. Well, I guess that can be said about anything.

    because its story wasn't what you'd expect going in (unless you let yourself be spoiled from the very beginning, in which case nothing would leave much of an impression of course).
    its exactly what most people want from indie retrolike games

    Still perturbed that this game beat Red/Blue in GameFAQ's best game ever series. Games that started a franchise, birthed a generation, defeated by a 2015 fad. But I never played the game, and it's still pretty popular from what I've seen. So it could grow to be a timeless classic, but in the context of its time now, that beating Red/Blue? I don't get it. It's interesting though to read less than positive opinions on the game, first time here for me.

    I tried to play Undertale. I liked it at first, but then I got really, really bored and just stopped. I tried again recently but stopped earlier than I did last time.
    The soundtrack is amazing though.

    That's what happened to me. I had to force myself to play it, something that has never happened. Looking back, it wasn't worth it, even though my original post says it was. I think I am just trying to rationalize me playing it.

    Oh, fuck, I HATE the fandom.

    Unfortunately I am friends with two of those people. They're nice people overall, but

    i was going to ask how beating a 4-hour game could be considered a chore, but you probably did two or three of the routes instead of just the neutral route.

    the way battles were a turn-based/shmup mashup kinda hooked me from the beginning. that and the soundtrack kept me going until about the end of the first route, and once i'd beaten the neutral boss i felt inclined to play the rest.

    everything outside of battles is very, very simplistic, so i definitely see what you're getting at. probably won't be playing it again any time soon, but it was an interesting experience

    Honestly, the MLP fandom isn't anywhere near as bad as the Undertale fandom. I've seen weird shit from both sides, but I've seen the worst from Undertale's fandom.

    Simple, because GameFAQs is a terrible site (which has been brought up numerous times here) and Red/Blue aren't good games. The first good main series Pokemon games were Gold/Silver/Crystal.

    And also beaten Super Mario World. I remember one tumblr post regarding that Undertale deserves to be known more (and have the link if anyone is interested).

    Fandom alone is what caused Undertale to become utter shit, even today.

    Exactly what I did. I wanted to like it, but it got repetitive and stale fast. The only reason I even downloaded the game was because I read Sans' character bio on some undertale wiki when I was REALLY stoned, and I was like "HOLY SHIT this is a psychedelic game!" Playing it sober was a disappointment though.
